I watched a program on the History Channel a while back titled Comic Book Superheroes: Unmasked. Writer Dennis O'Neil said that the writers and editors of comic books are not just writers and editors, but they have become "custodians of folklore."
That phrase stuck in my head as I reviewed my manuscript today. All the characters that have been stuck in my head - Chase, Trista, Seraph, Redic, Selah, Cam, Brax...they are all about to become real. They haunted me until I got their stories down on paper. And now, they are about to see the light of day. To be introduced to readers around the world.
That's a pretty big deal.
And what a burden, too. I keep second-guessing myself. What if I haven't conveyed their stories in the best way possible? What if the readers don't fall in love with these characters as I have? Oh, the what ifs are endless! But I'll never know unless I try.
I want people to know how Selah and Seraph save the Circeae System by restoring the glory of the Ruler Prince. I want people to learn the legend of the space sailor KinCade. I want people to feel that thrill as the Logia finally overcome the Strages. It's been in my head for so long; it's almost like revealing a secret that's been eating at me. It's a relief. It's exciting! It's awesome!!
I am the custodian of the Circeae folklore. And I'm ready to share it. Are you ready to experience it?
